  • A water bearer in India had two large pots, both hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

    For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house.

  • However blessed we have been with a mild winter, be prepared for some problems in the garden due to insects, diseases and fungi. 

    A normal freezing winter creates a hostile environment making it difficult for insect larvae, bacteria and various fungi to survive. It looks like this will not be the case this year. With temperatures in the 40s and 50s, we will not have a very good barrier against many pests this year. So it is time to make plans to combat this issue using all the tools we have available for this year and in the future.

  • The dates of 4-H Camp for Carroll County 4-Hers are July 3-6. This year’s four-day camp will be held at North Central 4-H Camp in Carlisle and is open to kids ages 9 to 14.
